How you can study


We believe learning should be as flexible as possible. Many of our courses are available to study full-time or part-time - and many of our courses have been developed for online delivery, meaning you also have the option to study from home.


Classes are delivered face-to-face on campus.  Fins out more about our campsues across the Outer Hebrides - Our Centres - UHI Outer Hebrides

Blended learning

Students study through a combination of face-to-face classes on campus and remote learning.  Some lectures and sessions are timetabled remotely via our virtual learning environment and video conferencing.

Remote and Online Learning

You can access everything you need to learn via your computer or device. Lectures and other sessions are timetabled and you will attend these remotely via our virtual learning environment and video conferencing.  Learning materials are posted online and you can work through them in your own time, communicating with fellow students and your lecturers via discussion boards, forums, and email.  You’ll also be able to benefit from IT support, as well as funding for anyone in need of technical equipment to support their learning.
